First, I wanted to thank GFNOMAD for posting this information in the first place. I write blogs, but other then reading the responses I rarely look at the original blog and would never have noticed this "button" in the first place. I am also glad that Spark heard our "cry" and got rid of this issue, but at the same time, I'm somewhat appalled that someone thought this was a good idea in the first place. I love this site, and I love the security it gives us to make our journey in a supportive environment. Something like this jeopardizes this security and might make people think twice before putting themselves out there where others can help them. Thanks for getting rid of it, but maybe a little more long-term thought next time, eh?

Since my blogs share deeply personal information I definately did not want this showing up on Facebook. But, since I do share deeply personal information as part of my journey and growth, that is why I do not give my real name or 'identifying information' such as personal pictures.

My being able to share deeply personal stuff has here has been a HUGE part of my growth, as others posted responses of how they handled those things, or had suggestions on how I might handle things, or just to know there were people here supporting me and encouraging me to go forward in my growth. If all my personal specifics were 'out there' I could not have openly shared as I have. And, I would have been greatly held back in my growth.

I am glad they removed the feature though, cause I have read of a person with personal information on their blogs were tracked down and bothered by unpleasant persons. Having that feature to link our blogs with Facebook would have increased such risk. I agree that we need to be able to feel relatively safe and secure blogging here. And, I give a high-five to Sparks for seeing the light and removing the feature.

Thank you. I don't blog here so wasn't worried, thought I'd better change it just in case. I must've gone after they removed it since couldn't find it but did see a couple other settings I didn't like the way they were set so corrected them to my likings. :)

I've been advised by one of our members that Spark has removed the Share link! Problem solved. No worries. Please keep writing your blogs.

I think sending an email would be great just in case they miss this. I think it's very important

I was thinking I should send a Spark message to the team. Wasn't sure how many check their Spark mail. Would appreciate both your inputs :)

This info was posted on another team I belong to. I think it's important for privacy reasons. Decide how you feel and act accordingly. Barb

QUOTE:
"This information came to me from another member
Through another blog I just learned of a new feature on SparkPeople that automatically added a "Share Bar" to our blog entries. I do not like this feature.

If you'll notice your own blog now there is a "Share" bar at the top of the blog. That means if someone likes your blog entry they can "share" on their Facebook wall!! Who wants his/her blog about losing weight to show up on someone else s' facebook wall?

To delete this "Share bar" feature from your blog do this:

Go to your SparkPage.
Click to Edit the page.
On the top Un-check "Show share bar on my blog posts".
Save your changes. "

Personally,I do not want anything I write to show up on someones facebook wall. Just passing along the info in case anyone wants it.

Have a great night!
